Now that scumbag Jerry Jones needs to pony up money to the people who lost their homes for very little compensation for his damn stadium, plus the taxpayers who are paying for a huge chunk of it - he'll probably make a fortune off of this and line his & his buddies' own pockets as usual, and won't share anything with any of those people though

ARLINGTON, Texas -- North Texas puts on its game face Tuesday and came away as the host of Super Bowl XLV.

The 2011 game will be played at the new home of the Dallas Cowboys currently under construction in Arlington.

Cities across North Texas came together with team owner Jerry Jones to pitch the Metroplex and the stadium as the ideal location to host the annual championship game.

North Texas expects the Super Bowl to bring an estimated a $400 million into the region. Arlington Mayor Robert Cluck said an economic impact study will be conducted to better determine what the game can bring to North Texas

Also fighting for the bid were Glendale, Ariz., and Indianapolis, but Cluck thought North Texas offered too much for either city to compete with.

"This bid, ladies and gentleman, was a huge effort. Our bid was way ahead of, I think, of Indianapolis' bid both in terms of quality and seating ability," said Cluck. "We will pull out all the stops for this Super Bowl. I think it will be the best that anybody has ever seen, in fact, that is our pledge to you, that this Super Bowl will be second to none."

The Texas Super Bowl committee, led by former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Roger Staubach, had 15 minutes to pitch North Texas as the ideal location for the Super Bowl. Indianapolis tapped Colts coach Tony Dungy to pitch their bid while Glendale's committee chairman Mike Kennedy spoke for Arizona.

After hearing from all candidates, the owners met behind closed doors and cast secret ballots which ultimately named Arlington as the site for the Super Bowl XLV.

Glendale is hosting the Super Bowl next year. Kennedy had hoped to get their location into a three-year rotation for hosting the big game, such as the one currently in Miami.

Miami hosted the Super Bowl earlier this year and will again in 2010.
